This book is overridden by the new edition - Fourth Edition - including some updates with title change. The new title is: Passing the PgMP® Exam - A Study Guide.
PLEASE BUY “Passing the PgMP® Exam - A Study Guide” INSTEAD OF “Passing the PgMP® Exam the First Time” AS IT IS THE RECENT UPDATED EDITION.
This book is developed to help you in passing the Program Management Professional Certification PgMP® Exam the first time.
The book is created based on the “The Standard for Program Management – Third Edition” which is registered for PMI in 2013, I will call it here the Standard Guide.
This book is a complementary work to the Standards Guide; it highlights many tips, helps you to remember many important standards graphically, and provides you the sense of the exam. The graphical representation of the idea that should be communicated, helped a lot to sell the idea and to assure the positive acceptance.
Passing the PgMP® Exam the first time, can be achieved through a definition of a strong proven study plan, highlighting the areas that you should consider and hold in mind, finding easy ways to remember them, and paving the road to select the right answer, after understanding a lot to questions’ tips.
Furthermore, there are many tips and two set of exams; 170 questions each, with enough explanation for finding the right answer. This technique makes you more ready for the exam and more acquainted with the expected tricks.
This book is different from others as it is the first to be created by an author who passed the PfMP®, PgMP® and PMP® Exams, so this author knows how to pass the different exams from the PMI the first time. This book is different from the others as it contains two sets of the complete exam. Thus, it reflects the flavor of the questions that you are going to see on the exam. Besides, it covers different examples of each type of the commonly found questions on the PgMP® Exam model; including the regular question, table question, and question set.
As a program manager, your practical experience will help you a lot to pass the exam, and it is a critical success factor of your readiness to the exam. However, in this book, you will find a major support to orient you to the examination philosophy that you will face.
In some book sections, there is a written notice labeled as “Pragmatic Tips” where you find additional pragmatic hints grown-up from the long practical experience related to the same subject.
